Stop beating yourself up! Not so easy. Negative self talk, inner critic, catastrophising, self-doubt spirals – they are a natural consequence of being human.
But – our rush to beat ourselfs up when we believe we have ‘failed’ in some way – is a real squasher! It stops us moving forward and often results in us wallowing in a swamp of self-doubt for hours, weeks or even years!
In this episode you will join me in exploring why we do this negative self-talk and – crucially – how we can manage it – accept it and then do something to move us forward.
There is a kind of mind trick involved – and it revolves around a well researched concept – ‘distanced self talk’ – Article here.
I also recommend the book – ‘Chatter’ by Ethan Kross.
